Cursusdoelen
After this course, you are able to:
  • interpret the results of basic analytical chemical experiments using the appropriate statistical methods. 
  • explain - at a basic level - the interactions of electromagnetic radiation with atoms and molecules and exploit these in simple quantitative spectroscopic analyses.
  • explain the basics of chromatographical separation and detection techniques and interpret chromatograms.
  • interpret and predict the IR, NMR and mass spectra of simple organic molecules.
Inhoud
  • Mean, standard deviation, confidence intervals, prediction intervals, significant figures, error propagation, calibration, linear regression, internal standard, standard addition.  
  • The Beer-Lambert law, absorption – excitation – emission, energy levels, molecular vs. atomic UV-Vis spectra, single-beam and double-beam spectrometers.  
  • Extraction, multiplicative extraction, LC, GC, TLC, band broadening, types of LC, GC vs. distillation, column types, injection, HPLC, mobile and stationary phases, eluent strength, gradient elution, GC and LC detectors, mass spectrometer as detector. 
  • IR: group frequency region and fingerprint region, frequently occurring peaks. 
  • NMR: chemical shift, number of peaks, peak integrals, multiplets for weakly coupled systems, deuterated solvents. 
  • MS: molecular ion, base peak, fragmentation, isotopes, typical fragmentation patterns, McLafferty rearrangement, ‘rule of 13’, ‘logical losses’, nitrogen rule. 
Instructional Modes
This course will focus on you keeping up with reading the books and support you in that using a variety of tools:
  • a weekly set of basic questions on Brightspace, supported by so-called 'knowledge clips'
  • weekly tutorials with more advanced problems and exercises
  • a weekly Q&A session combined with topical examples
  • some computer practicals
Niveau
 
Voorkennis
Chemistry at the level of Dutch pre-university secondary education ('VWO') or comparable
Toetsinformatie
The digital exam will consist of two parts: an entry-level first part, and a second part of regular difficulty. If the first part results in a 5.0 or lower, the rest of the exam will not be graded. Grading will be in accordance with RU standards, on a scale of 1 to 10. The final grade is rounded to the nearest half, with the exception of grades between 5.0 and 6.0 which are rounded to the nearest integer. Grades of 6 and higher are considered a 'pass' and grades lower than 6 are considered a 'fail'.
